    Je sais, très facile, mais je veux être certain.
    J'appelle une agence de voyages français.

    "Pouvons-nous parler en anglais, s'il vous plâit?"

    "plaît"... oui c'est bon, mais habituellement on demande : Vous parlez anglais?

    The person will then know you are not comfortable with French and proceed in English if he/she can.

    Merci pour des résponses ET corrections.

    Julie--
    Yes, I would usually say that, but in this case I knew, without a doubt, that they spoke English, so I thought this phrase more appropriate.
